The Wisdom of Grief
Life is a series of ongoing losses; of people, places, and parts of self, and yet grief – the emotion we can experience as a result of loss – is rarely mentioned in coaching training.
In this conversation with integral coach Dina Bell-Laroche we explore grief and how to encounter it with our clients, the social perception of grief and grieving, the identity transformation catalyzed by loss, building safety and self-soothing, and the language of continued bonds.
